    Used a purse pattern for the first time ever!!!

    I have always used my imagination to make my purses and they would come out great! but this time i decided to switch it up and make the "Professional Tote!" I ended up following most of the pattern and it took me probably a good 12 hrs to make, since i had my sewing machine break and my MIL's machine isn't great since the thread kept breaking but i managed. I had to hand stitch the top zipper( which was a pain since i have a damaged nerve in my right hand that makes it go numb) but the tote turned out great!

    the main fabric is a quilt my MIL started to make for me, then suddenly decided to move out of state. so i took the unfinished fabric and decided to use it for purses.

    I made the Professional Tote one time for a friend out of Raven's fabric. it turned out nice. i have one now cut out with bowling pins on it for my paperwork with the bowling league. I haven't had time to finish it yet.

    Yours looks great. I have fabric collected to make another while I visit my son later this month--be his wife's birthday present.
    God Bless,
